David Arquette Wrestles King Brian Anthony at Northeast Wrestling Event
Actor David Arquette has been filming a movie in Newburgh over the last few weeks, but tonight he'll be taking a break from being in front of the camera, and taking a very different role, on a much different stage.
Best know for his movie roles in the 'Scream' series, David Arquette is also an avid wrestling fan. He even starred in a wrestling movie, 'Ready to Rumble' back in 1999. After the movies release, David took on the role as professional wrestler, and actually became the Northeast Wrestling Champion.
That leads us to David's comeback tonight at the Hudson Valley Community Center in Poughkeepsie. David will team up with “Hurricane” Shane Helms, who was his stunt double in the Ready to Rumble movie. They will be taking on "King" Brian Anthony and "Lord" Anthony Battle in a special tag team match.
We got a call from David's management to arrange an on air interview on Kicks 105.5, and of course we said yes. I'm also friends with Brian Anthony, now know as 'King Brian'. Brian has been on the show before promoting events at the Danbury PAL building, so I thought it would be great to have him here with David to promote the show....What a mistake that was. Check out the video to see how things went from bad to worse during the interview:
